incidents at three gun shows. and here in washington, vice president joe biden is about to take his official oath of office to begin his second term and we're standing by to bring it live to you as it happens. right now i'm joined by msnbc contributor jerry bernstein. former chief economist and policy adviser for vice president biden. and new york tannen. former domestic policy direct or four the obama/biden campaign. and jen saki and former obama white house deputy communication's director now seep your vice president and manager director at global strategy group, i public affairs and research firm and back at the table, democratic governor mallory of connecticut. good to have you back, governor. >> good to be back. >> we're going live to the vice president's residence of the naval observatory in washington by his swearing in of supreme court justice sonya sotomayer and the vice presidency is a job biden said he didn't want. in 2007, he told a reporter in iowa and this is an amazing quote which somehow doesn't get played enough -- i absolutely can say with certainty i would not be anybody's
of the united states joe biden will be sworn in for his second term by u.s. supreme court justice that wasn't even a member of the court four years ago. we're talking about justice sonia sotomayor. she just spoke with our own soledad o'brien who is here at the national mall with me. not every day you get to speak with a supreme court. was it up at the supreme court? >> it was. >> pretty impressive. >> it's an amazing building and she's pretty remarkable to talk to. she has a book out. it's called "my beloved world" and it's about navigating a world, she was born in poverty in the bronx would go to princeton and yale and work as a district attorney and then eventually end up as a supreme court justice. and she says that when she swears in joe biden on sunday, that it is, considering where she came from, absolutely stunning. >> i was thinking just a couple of days ago, if i think back at when i was a kid, which of the two events would have seemed more improbable to me, i realize each one was so far-fetched that i couldn't have imagined either. >> supreme court? >> supreme court, swearing in t
opinion here. you are going to see joe biden come out with his report on tuesday. i am sure the president will mention it in the inaugural address and really push it in the state of the union address. i still get the impression from talking to candidates head of the liberal think tank one of the groups involved. the president will rebegin up his campaign. i think you will see this on a lot of issues to get a lot of like minded people to raise money to put pressure on congressmen by public education camps saying voters i think they are going to go smaller rather than bigger. i think i will propose stop on weapons ban. they will get through a universal background check. 40 percent of all of the guns sold are not subject to any check. i think one of the arguments they will make is and you could argue it right or wrong. one of the arguments they will make if the problem isn't the weapon but the person holding the weapon why shouldn't there be any check when someone buys a gun they don't have mental health problems. >> i hear you have senator blumenthal also. you had a chance to talk to him. i
in los angeles. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. vice president joe biden is meeting with the house today getting ready to, to put together that list of recommendations to curb gun violence. there is one point where both sides agree, punishing people who lie on their background checks. until 2010, nearly 80,000 people were denied guns for lying or giving inaccurate information about their criminal history. but, only 44 of those people were actually charged with a crime. this is one of the issues joe biden's task force is looking at and we can last timing expect his plan to include a stronger focus on background checks. those recommendations to the president could come as early as tomorrow. the group is also looking at mental health treatment, violence in video games and movies and a potential ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips. the nra is, of course showing strong obviouspposition to. this yesterday ocnn's face the nation, group president david keen said an assault weapons ban will not make its way through congress.
on a rational trot -- thought and reality. vice-president joe biden today presenting his proposals under control to the president who earlier in the day an ounce to the assembled press corps that ticking away guns, ammunition, and controlling guns is not as second amendment issue. >> the issue here is not whether or not we believe in the second amendment. the issue is tomorrow their sensible steps that we can take to make sure that somebody like the individual in newtown cannot walk into a school and gun down a bunch of children. i'm confident there are steps we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. lou: his authority as president. do you remember when the constitution once defined the president's powers and not the president himself? all of this transpiring as left-wing advocacy groups, democratic politicians, and the liberal national media are clearly coordinated and committed to accomplishing precisely what president obama says they are not doing, that is, taking away our guns. mainstream liberal media abandoned any pretense of objectivity in t
president joe biden, and vice president biden -- >> host: when did that happen? >> guest: it happened in 2009. very early -- well, maybe even, well yeah, 2009 in the first part. so, he had the lead for the iraq policy. and a lot of this is reflected in my book. but there was a debate about how much to get involved behind maliki, and the investor at the time, ambassador chris hill pretty much thought that maliki was the man we had to work with and that his rival didn't really have a good chance of making it to the prime minister post not withstanding the fact that his party won more seats than maliki's party but there was a debate in the government where vice president joe biden came down and was in favor of working with maliki as there would be a necessary evil or just the man that was going to be there. so, when things really get hot or when there is a crisis, vice president wyden calls and he called the iranian flights to syria. he called about the release. but it just seems that his call seems to have less and less influence this time it's gone wrong. >> host: let's go to lincoln f
of those might come up this week when joe biden unveils the recommendations that his group is making. jim, good morning. caller: i have been listening to the commentary about violent video games. i guess it is cause and effect, caused being behind the violent action, the violent media. i do not simply agree with that. i think that the biggest issue is mental illness. really, the media in this instance is being used as a scapegoat. host: so, what needs to be done? put more money into the mental health system? caller: i would recommend that, but in a targeted way. as you probably know, the fbi has a national fingerprinting database that could exist for people with mental illnesses. the real issue is the accountability for those the purchase weapons. not only the accountability of the owner, but those who may steal them. bob host: this commentary comes from examiner -- steal them. host: this commentary comes from examiner.com. host: so, we are getting your thoughts this morning. what are the other articles this morning in the arts section of "the new york times"? this is the front page. the
president joe biden who will meet with the connecticut governor promised mayors across the country yesterday that the administration is in it to win it for this fight. >> there's some who say the most powerful voice in this debate belongs to the gun lobbies and those who demand the stop to these common sense approaches to save lives. i think they're wrong. high capacity magazines don't have a practical sporting purpose or hunting purpose. as one hunter told me. if you've got 12 rounds, you've got 12 rounds, it means you've already missed the deer 11 times, you should pack the sucker in at that point. you don't deserve to have a gun period you're that bad. >> as the obama administration builds up for the legislative battle, a new poll shows 56% of americans favor stricter gun laws. and the same poll shows the national rifle association with a higher approval than hollywood. >> the nra's had some good days and bad days in this. and actually that depends on how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day. and the media is calling them too aggressive. that's a good day for the nra, that usua
violence. on thursday, vice-president joe biden called for action before hundreds of u.s. mayors gathered in washington, d.c. foreign annual meeting. in his address, biden referenced the shooting rampage in newtown, connecticut that claimed the lives of 20 children, six school staff, and the shooter's mother. >> we have to do something. i hope we all agree there is a need to respond to the carnage on our streets and in our schools. i hope we all agree that mass shootings like the one we witnessed in newtown 34 days ago cannot continue to be tolerated. that tragedy in all my years of public life i think is -- has affected the public psyche in a way i have never seen before. >> a new poll affirms vice president joe biden's claim about the impact of new town, finding it affected the public opinion on guns or deeply than other shootings. a new poll says 54% of americans believe gun control laws should be tightened up from 39% last april. the increased support swept across party lines, with an 18- point rise among republicans. nine in 10 people said the three favored requiring background check
president joe biden and president obama's request, led a task force to address the broad, sensitive, and inflammatory issue of gun control. gun groups like the national rifle association, presented views to the biden task force which has addressed specific proposals. notably, reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 and close loopholes. require standardized universal criminal background checks and mental health background checks at gun shows and through private dealers. support for what the obama- biden team is doing at the federal level was echoed by governor cuomo in new york, on and for the state level. >> set an example for the rest of the nation. let them look at new york and say, this is what you can do! pass reasonable gun control in the state of new york! and i say to you, forget the extremists. it's simple. no one hunts with an assault rifle. no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer! end the madness now! >> the point of governor cuomo's plan, single standards for background checks, notably to bar convicted felons. ban large capacity ammunition clips. ten rounds
president obama and vice president joe biden will unveil their plan to fight gun violence. here's what we're expecting them to say -- according to an official familiar with the situation the president will press for a ban on high capacity magazines, purr for universal background checks and an assault weapons ban, and request funding to treat mental illness as well as funding to enhance school safety. already the nra is on the attack before it's even seen the plan. the group released this ad which paints obama as an elitist hypocrite. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be s

and was in the meeting with joe biden. and scientist after scientist has showed there is no correlation in the video games. and i just think pointing in that direction is taking us away from the real problem which is guns. it's not an either/or, but i'd like to start up here. >> first of all, who were the scientists? are they scientists that the video game industry paid for? because i'll tell you what, i conducted my own scientific survey with two teenage boys watching them and watching all of their friends grow up. of course, it wasn't a scientific study. i saw it with my own eyes, and i'm telling you, kids from the age these days of 8, 9, 10 to the time they're 20, 21, 22 simulate the murder of thousands and thousands of human beings on these video games. donny, just -- and i had this conversation with mike barnicle before on the air, i believe -- just as pornography desensitizes young males to sexuality, these video games desensitize young males. and movies by people like quentin tarantino that make chopped up, shot-up cadavers a punch line where the audience actually laughs, those work together
. obama presented his plan alongside vice-president joe biden, who headed the white house task force appointed after newtown. >> in the months since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us in sandy hook elementary, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. 900. in the past month. and every day we wait, that number will keep growing. so i am putting forward a specific set of proposals based on the work of joe's task force. and in the days ahead, i intend to use whatever with this office holds to make them a reality. >> the white house plan is expected to meet stiff resistance from house republicans and even some senate democrats in states with loose restrictions on firearms. in a statement, the national rifle association vowed to challenge obama with what it called "p5 of the century." and his remarks, obama called on the american people to help him push gun control through congress. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. if parents and teachers, police officers and pastors, if hunters and spor
ban. he said a task force led by vice president joe biden had presented him with a list of " common sense" steps to prevent shootings like the one at sandy hook and elementary school. obama also alluded to potential resistance from opponents of gun control. >> part of the challenge we confront is even the sight -- slightest hint of some sensible responsible legislation in this area. it fans this notion that somehow, here it comes, and that everybody's guns are going to be taken away. it is unfortunate, but that is the case. if you look over the first four years of my administration, we tried to tighten up and for some of the laws already on the books, but it would be pretty hard to argue that somehow than owners have had their rights and fringe. >> the new poll shows support for gun control measures is on the rise. and abc news/washington post survey found 54% of americans are in favor of stricter gun control laws in general, the highest in five years. nearly 60% support it and on high-capacity ammunition clips. and it's the push for greater gun control, many across the country are
. >>> there he is joe biden taking the oath of office this morning and not far from here in fact over at the naval observatory, and a twist of historic irony perhaps the country's first black president's public swearing is going to happen on the same day that we honor one of america's great civil rights activists, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr.

president joe biden's task force on guns, and later colin is headed to the white house to attend president of his announcement on gun-control. he is joining us from washington, d.c.. welcome back to "democracy now!" though the announcement has not been made as of this broadcast, president obama says he is calling for a ban on assault weapons, and high-capacity magazines. your response? >> i think that makes sense. i think the president has taken a comprehensive look at gun violence and gun policy in america and realized there are multiple ways to move forward that will make it more difficult for dangerous people to get their hands on increasingly lethal weapons that do damage to american people. we really applaud the leadership from the administration, the comprehensive look they are taking. i think it will go along with to maintaining the public engagement on this issue that will be needed to see these policies become lost in this country. >> in our meetings with vice president biden, what kinds of recommendations did you and your organization, every campaign, make? >> we really highlight
obama later this morning will be outlining the recommendations put forth by vice president joe biden. part of them will be some executive action. this is from our website, c- span.org. the president may also announced several executive orders which will take effect immediately to curb the violence. so, the assault weapons ban and those sorts of things need congressional approval. president obama will take some sort of executive action and we will talk about that later this morning. 11:45 a.m. eastern time as when we expect the president. look for our coverage. on coverage on the executive orders, do you support that idea by the president to do action on his own? we want to hear from you this morning. here is the arizona republic, courtesy of the newseum in washington. do you support executive action on gun-control -- on some gun- control measures? i want to know what you think about president obama using the executive order. this is from the washington post blog. the vast majority of actions he can take are relatively minor in nature, it says. it's unlikely obama can significantly al
that mean? what does that mean? why is joe biden hiding qualified women in his house? >> what i better than joe biden. >> i agree. i'm grad we're talking about it. that photo had about a dozen people in it. the reality is there's 22 members of the cabinet and cabinet-level positions. eight of them are women. another five are minority men. so it's not like that photo is exactly representative of the cabinet. that's one thing. and the other thing is the groups that are engaged many the clutching of the pearls on this are number one, republicans, who, come on, seriously, they couldn't even find any women to talk about birth control and they're obsessing over women's reproductive health and the beltway media which is not exactly teeming with women either. so i think it's a little bit of trolling. but, of course, the first term of a president is like freshman year. you have to surround the people that are good for you and the second term is like you're an upper classmen and you pick your roommates and it looks like from the past three highs picking bros, only guys but he's picking three very hig
begin my thanking our vice president joe biden for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a devisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we are grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some unexpected people, in particular i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today, grant fritz, julia stokes, hina zeha. and taja good. they are pretty representative of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. hina, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, hina, that's you. she wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who los
about the president's push to reduce gun violence. we heard from joe biden who did the leg work for the guns package that rolled out yesterday. here he is speaking moments ago at the conference of mayors about denying gun sales with a swath of trouble makers. >> time and experience has demonstrated we should take a close look at the list to see if it fits the needs of society at the moment. it's part of our recommendations to the president and it suggested that the attorney general study that question. for example, right now certain convicted stalkers can still purchase guns. >> again that was the vice president a moment ago. as you have probably heard by now, a lot of folks are uneasy. that puts it mildly about this white house guns initiative. we have a house republican who threatened to defund the white house and impeach the president. we have a state rep in tennessee who wants to arrest a federal agent who tried to enforce gun laws and the governor of mississippi is talking about nullifying federal arms directives in history state. tim muller is the sheriff and he wrote to t
officials carrying guns. >>> on that topic, vice president joe biden met with house members and cabinet officials today. preparing to give the president his task force's recommendations on how to reduce gun violence. cnn white house correspondent dan lothian join us live now. dan. >> and the vice president ao met with the president today. they went other some proposals. the president saying that later in the week, he'll be outlining some specifics about watt administration needs to do. there will be no doubt, some resistance to what the president will be offering. but the president says that he is not worried about the politics. president obama says he's already reviewing the vice president's recommendations aimed at tackling gun violence. while some may require congressional approval. >> how we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals. and how we track that more effectively. there may be some steps that we can take administratively as opposed to through legislation. >> reporter: strong resistance to executive orders from some gun right advocates wh
spooked by something that happened 20 years ago. don't forget, joe biden who was running this was in the middle of that fight, then, too as a senator. so democrats are completely spooked by the gun issue. that's not going to change. what they have to be convinced of is that public opinion has shifted because of newtown and that there are some of these fights, not all of them, some of these fights that they can win. i mean, republicans are worried if they vote for some of these issues, they are going to be primaried by more conservative republicans. democrats understand that this may be an opportunity. >> gloria borger, thanks so much for that. >> sure. >>> you're about to hear oprah winfrey's reaction to lance armstrong's admission that he's a cheater. >>> later, does another member of the clinton family have political ambitions? [ male announcer ] how do you measure happiness? by the armful? by the barrelful? the carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can
at happening now those questions. jon: sounds good. heather touched on it. vice president joe biden presents his plan to curb gun violence to president obama tomorrow. one city is apparently not waiting around for washington act. chicago quickly becoming ground zero in the debate on gun control. that city saw more than 500 murders last year, prompting mayor rahm emanuel to take action with a gun control plan of his own. steve brown is live in chicago right now, but i guess mayor emanuel is not. he is in d.c. today suggesting democratic strategy to try to get gun control accomplished, is that right, steve? >> reporter: in a sense yes, it was part of the discussion at a public revent held in washington that mayor emanuel took part in. local press was made aware of it well in advance. it touches on the city's most dramatic problem which is gun violence in this city. you mentioned over 500 homicides. just this past weekend, three more homicides, two of them teachers, all gun related. emanuel suggested in the d.c. forum the best course of action for greater gun control measures is to force the ho
. now if you look, joe biden, thinking about 2016, governor o'malley of maryland, thinking about 2016, governor cuomo of new york thinking about 2016. governor hickenlooper thinking about 2016, you have democrats saying let's take this on, let's take the lead that would have been viewed as risky, perhaps suicidal a few years go. let's see how it plays out. >> will it remain? is it fleeting? we shall see, john king. thank you very much. >>> gun rights advocates tell me they see gun registration as a slippery slope toward banning, even confiscating guns. but there are areas where they agree with president obama. we're going to play something from this gun owner who spoke that may be universal background checks, maybe that's the most palletable idea we heard from the president. i want to take you to las vegas. because miguel marquez is there. he is at the biggest gun range in nevada. huge, miguel, huge announcement today from the president. what reaction are you getting from gun advocates there? >> reporter: it is a huge gun range, a huge reaction here across nevada. there is the giant s
